Waiting on Wednesday: In Twenty Years

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

In Twenty Years by Allison Winn Scotch
Pub. Date: July 1, 2016



Goodreads says, "Twenty years ago, six Penn students shared a house, naively certain that their friendships would endure—until the death of their ringleader and dear friend Bea splintered the group for good. Now, mostly estranged from one another, the remaining five reluctantly gather at that same house on the eve of what would have been Bea’s fortieth birthday. But along with the return of the friends come old grudges, unrequited feelings, and buried secrets. Catherine, the CEO of a domestic empire, and Owen, a stay-at-home dad, were picture-perfect college sweethearts—but now teeter on the brink of disaster. Lindy, a well-known musician, is pushing middle age in an industry that’s all about youth and slowly self-destructing as she grapples with her own identity. Behind his smile, handsome plastic surgeon Colin harbors the heartbreaking truth about his own history with Bea. And Annie carefully curates her life on Instagram and Facebook, keeping up appearances so she doesn’t have to face the truth about her own empty reality. Reunited in the place where so many dreams began, and bolstered by the hope of healing, each of them is forced to confront the past."
I love the concept of college friends reuniting after many years.  This seems like a great summertime read.  What do you guys think?

  1. I agree that this sounds really good. I haven't seen my college friends in a long time. That's going to be us in a couple of years :)

    Good pick! I will have to give this a try when it is published.

  9. Oh, I love books like this! I'll definitely check this one out. The description reminds me of The Reunion by Amy Silver (AKA Paula Hawkins of 'Girl on the Train' fame).
